Pitt Adds a DT from Hawaii

Frankly, I’m glad he’s committed just for this photo.

The Dalai Lama visited Kailua High School to recognize the school for its programs on compassion, conflict resolution, and nonviolence. Naturally a kid who causes havoc as DT on the football team got to be on stage with him. My day is made.

Jerimiah Taleni is probably 6-2, 315 pounds (though ESPN.com puts him at 6-1, 340). He’s unranked by all recruiting sites except Rivals.com, which gives him 2-stars.

He had offers from Washington St., UMass and Nevada. I’m going to guess he is is something of a project. He’s the 25th overall recruit and counts as the 21st for the 2013 class.





I love that we got a Samoan on our team. They are charismatic and well known for playing tough football. I don’t care where kids come from. Play hard for Pitt.

Dr Shannon, I believe Randy Shannon, former HC at Miami who also was DC there during its championship seasons, is still available. He certainly has Florida ties but not aware of any connection with Chryst

dr tom, pitt is no longer recruiting jacquille veii. they were recruiting him as a corner and they cancelled his visit saying that they had 27 commits and werent taking any more db’s. the rumor is that josh jones is a silent verbal. he visited pitt and just cancelled his official to msu this week.
